Project PJ continues again this year, can you help?

December 2021

My name is Ethan DePaolo and I am a junior at Franklin High School. Project PJ was started in 2007 and seven years ago, my sister was contacted by one of the families who had previously run it asking if she would take it over, as my family has participated in this project for over 10 years. Since Ryan is at school in NYC, I am going to keep Project PJ going this year. 

Project PJ is a community service project founded to bring awareness to kids in need placed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts foster care programs. I am asking people to donate NEW pajamas for foster children of all ages, newborn to 18 years. The pajamas I collect will be donated to the Whitinsville office of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families which helps the communities in our local area, including Franklin.

Foster children are very unfortunate to be placed in the situation they are in. They leave their homes with barely anything and families are only given $20 a day to spend for their daily needs. Pajamas help ease the transition for these children and I would like to ask you to support Project PJ this holiday season. 

Last year, the project donated around 300 pairs of pajamas and this year the goal is 325. All sizes are in great need. Pajamas can be dropped off at 48 High Ridge Circle at your convenience. We have a large plastic container on our side steps for collection. 

If you'd rather purchase pj's online, you can have them shipped directly to our home. We would like all donations by January 1st, but later donations are always appreciated. 

If you have any questions do not hesitate to email me at 

I appreciate your consideration in supporting this cause!

With Gratitude,

Ethan DePaolo
